The Tissot Visodate range is commonly known for their dressy look in the modern line, but the Visodate harps all the way back to the 1950s and meant visible date. The Visodate range is available in dressy watches all the way to diver style watches like this. This watch features a lovely blue dial with a blue friction bezel, striking original hands and a pop of colour on the second hand. The watch still has it's original, and now very puffy, lume plots. Original Tissot crown is still on the watch too, this is as original as they come.
Points of Mention
This is a vintage watch from the 1970s and the watch has patina all over, the bezel has aged and faded into a lovely light blue. The dial has also patina'd to a beautiful tone of blue. The watch is currently running and has an unknown service history.
I have a soft spot for vintage diver style watches, especially ones with a pop of colour which this definitely provides. Tissot is a brand that still has a lot of room to grow in the vintage community and still has a lot of models I believe will increase in popularity, whilst they are still great prices I will be adding one to my collection in the near future.
The first Frédérique Constant for the website and I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised! The build quality is excellent, the detailing on the dial is out of this world and the movement and finish is brilliant. All this for the price is just amazing, especially when you consider what you have to pay to get the same thing from a much larger brand with a more powerful name.
I think the price is justifiable for the dial alone, could photograph it all day long and I have to say, I nearly did! Pick this up if you're looking for a good value watch which will stand out in the room and blow people away!
I am excited to bring this very incredible watch to the store as it was one I enjoyed researching about and learning about! The brand Lemania is most famous for it's movement, this case was no difference with the introduction of the Caliber 1345 developed in the beginning of the 1970s. This movement and it's design would see it's way into many big Swiss names we know and love, ranging from Tissot up to Omega and many others. By the 1980s they bring it to the market under their own name and called it the Lemania Regatta, which is the model we have here. Interesting this one is also signed "Elvstrom Sails", though it is not the typical Elvstrom Sail ones you can find on the market or in the documents online, which makes this one certainly interesting!
When you consider what this watch has to offer and how unique it is, it is certainly a lot of watch for the money and someone to be considered if you are not only into the big names. Goodluck finding another one of these on someones wrist in the wild!
Points of Mention
The watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is showing signs of wear and age to the case, the dial is clean. The regatta function works as intended and the watch is running, though there is no service history with this watch.
I had a lot of fun trying to learn what I could on this watch, though I suspect I only discovered a mere drop within the ocean! When considering watches for the personal collection it usually stems from watches like this, ones I look into and get absolutely hooked!
This is an incredible value proposition when you truly take a second to look at all the details! What you have here is a manual wound Hamilton running the Cal. 649 which is also known as the ETA 2750, a very reliable 17 jewel movement! It is military field styling with an all matte case and beautifully grained black dial and a matching matte Hamilton signed crown! Retailed by L.L.Bean hence the presence of that at 12 o'clock! All this put into a 33mm case which has a lug-to-lug of 40mm which means it wears very well on all wrists!
Once you have considered all this and look at the price I think you will be as shocked as I was when I priced this watch! Get them whilst they are still affordable.
Everyone loves a Seiko 5! They are often most people's first ever automatic watch and continue to be a watch owned or purchased multiple times in various colours and styles over the years, myself included! This lovely reference 7S26-0480 features the very well executed honeycomb dial in white, match that with the great proportions of 37mm on the wrist, you have something that is a delight to wear and easily wearable for either men or women!
Whether you are a seasoned veteran in the watch community or a newbie, treat yourself to one of these incredible watches and experience a Seiko 5 at least once. It's a must-do if you are a true collector!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with no box or paperwork. It was partial serviced this year and is running nicely. The dial is clean and free of marks, the watch has been worn and therefore does have signs of wear to the bracelet and case. Overall a very fair example for an even fairer price!
My second ever automatic watch was a Seiko 5! I have had a love for them since and that will never go away, whenever the chance comes up to purchase one at a fair price I usually jump at it, this was no exception!
How damn cool is this lovely Stowa Convertible travel clock / pocket watch! It is powered by a manual wound movement and can be rested on it's extended standard at the back, the whole case is a gold-tone plate in incredible condition! The fact this has survived with it's original box and Stowa tag is incredible too! All protected by a lovely leather case that is also in great condition, I feel as if this watch hasn't seen the light an awful amount of times!
Glycine is famous for their Airman range that was introduced in 1953, without that line some would argue the brand wouldn't be around today. But I truly believe this DS range of watches deserves a lot more love and attention than it currently gets. Whether you are a newbie in the collecting community or a hardcore veteran I think you cannot deny the design of this watch, they truly executed it perfectly and provided everything you could want in a complicated chronograph.
If you are in the market for a great watch for the office or for smart occasions but don't have fortunes to spend, then look no further. Add this to your basket and I guarantee you'll find yourself wearing this watch much more than you can imagine.
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's original box and paperwork. Included is a brand new leather strap by Glycine, nice little add-on to the black leather strap currently on the watch. The watch has been worn in rotation of a large collection and therefore is good overall condition.
Oh all the watches I have picked up to put on my wrist for the photoshoot this has been by far the most fun, the watch just begs to be photographed and looks like a million pounds on the wrist! Designed flawless in my opinion with one of the best complicated dials I have seen in a very long time, for the price I truly don't think you can go wrong.
Does it get anymore Panerai than this? The PAM210 features the classic Radiomir case, wire lugs, screw down onion crown, sandwich dial with excellent lume, exhibition case back with a simple, yet great, movement. Wide 24mm lugs allowing for the iconic large straps and easy changeability you'd come to expect from any Panerai. This reference was discontinued in 2012 having been first brought to the market in 2005. So you will not being seeing anymore of these come out of retail. It really is an attractive watch and one that true Panerai fans certainly appreciate and rate highly.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set with it's box, paperwork and a spare Panerai strap. The watch is in worn condition, however it is in good overall condition with very few signs of wear and the case is in excellent condition. The watch is in full working order and is running well!
When first taking this watch out of the box I thought "There is no way I can wear this watch, it's just too big"... But Panerai definitely know what they are doing when it comes to case ergonomics, this watch just hugs the wrist and whilst definitely demanding it's presence it is not uncomfortable at all and I would happily enjoy wearing this without issue!
I am excited to bring this incredible Omega Speedmaster #SpeedyTuesday to sale! It comes as a full set with everything it would have when sold initially, in very good condition. It is also a very early 14*/2012! It ticks a lot of boxes for the Speedmaster fan out there, it certainly ticks a lot of boxes for me. This watch is special for a lot of reasons beyond how incredible it looks!
It was released by Omega in partnership with Fratello watches to celebrate the 5th year anniversary of their #SpeedyTuesday which they introduced in 2012, hence being limited to 2012 pieces. The dial is inspired by the Alaska Project III moon watch which only 56 were made, but this is the first reverse Panda Omega have done in Speedmaster Professional. It is also the first watch Omega sold entirely online! That's a lot of firsts...
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with everything it would have been sold new with, even the plastic watch shipment case. The watch is worn but in good condition, hairline scratches to be expected on acrylic crystal. Still under manufacture warranty too, plus it is an early 14*/2012 limited edition piece!
The SpeedyTuesday is not only a super cool watch but one that means a lot to me! You will see on my home page a picture of this watch under the "Sold" picture, that is because I actually sold one of these very early on in the KibbleWatches days when this watch was first released! So it holds a special place for me and I am excited to offer another one, take it quick!
Here we have a completely original and untouched Favre-Leuba Harpoon! The reason I add emphasis on "Original" and "Untouched" as one of these watches was sold on a competitors website with a redial and non-original hands for... Are we ready.... $1300! So with that in mind how about I offer you one that has it's original lines on the dial which can only be seen under high magnification and in the right light, it also comes with it's original and insanely domed crystal! The simplicity of this watch is what really makes it charming, the crown is hidden behind the case which only adds to how space like this watch looks on the wrist.
So if you want this watch and want it in original condition and for a very fair price then look no further! We have you covered.
This Sicura has such a striking blue dial and to pair that it is in such a unique shaped case! It is like a cross between a square and cushion shaped with lovely curves and angles on the sides sloping towards the lugs. It is definitely not a small watch but wears so well due to the shape of the case. Paired on a comfortable and good looking stretchy bracelet, suits it well though I can already picture this watch on a lovely blue leather strap!
One misconception about Sicura is that they are Breitling or have this HUGE connection and therefore people are selling them as Breitlings or with that in the title. The truth is there is a connection but these are not Breitling's, nor where they even made under the same roof or in the same factory. During 1979 the CEO of Sicura saved Breitling by purchased the company, he later closed the doors to Sicura and put all his focus on Breitling. It's a great story and deserves being mentioned that's for sure!
This watch is showing signs of wear on the case and crystal, it is a vintage watch afterall and a lot of brands at this time used stainless steel for the caseback and basemetal for the rest of the watch. Please see all the photos of the watch and request more if you require, I pride myself on providing some of the most honest photos and descriptions of the watches I sell in the market! So do not hesitate to ask.
